    In the US, never ever buy a car brand new. Buy a car that's at least 4 years old, with decent mileage and a good resell value brand (Toyota, Subaru etc). Look at Kelly Blue Book see how much it should cost. Never tell them you're paying with cash, pretend you're gonna lease until they calculate the drive off price as if you're leasing, then tell them you're gonna pay in cash.
    They make more money either by leasing or by financing your vehicles so they'll give you numbers as if leasing is cheap...but they'll profit over time. If you tell them you're paying in cash, they'll stack it up upfront knowing full well they won't get as much.

    If you're gonna buy "quality dress shoes" (for men), designer brand anything usually has very low quality. It's because you're paying for brand name not quality. Buy a brand that ONLY make shoes (or within the same types of products ie if they make shoes, and make leather jacket or leather bags, that's okay), 9/10 it's gonna be on average better than a brand that make shoes, shirts, and other kinds of clothes. Buy those that specify either blake stitched or even better or goodyear welted (both of these means you can resole them; most shoes have glued on soles which is cheaper but essentially unresolable---you'd be surprised though how many designer brands have pasted soles lol). The sweet spot for a good quality shoes is 200-300 (esp if direct to consumer), unless you're paying for bespoke or top of the line brands like Carmina or John Lobb which would be closer to 500-1k---otherwise don't buy sh!t from designers brands like Gucci. If you're adventurous, you'd be surprised how many old John Lobbs are sold on ebay for cheap (if you take them to a high quality cobbler, you can turn around to resell it 5-10x the value you bought it + cobbler fees LOL---this is risky ha...I've only done this once, you're mileage may vary lmao). For types of shoes, buy plain toe oxfords in black or dark brown (if you gotta have one, of course get the black). If you have these kinds you're set for any and all occasions. Classics stay FOREVER. It'll never go out of style.

    PS If you're lactose intolerant, you can buy lactose pills which you can take before eating any dairy products...it usually stops diarrhea for me LMFAO If you go to Costco you can get a pack with almost a hundred pills in it. LOL

    ➢Save to invest, don't save to save (Slow money beat no money)

    ➢Ang pag aasawa ay hindi yan minamadali (Mahirap ka ng kumawala if hindi sya ang right one)

    ➢Don't try casino/gambling (Ikaw lang din ang talo sa bandang huli)

    ➢Avoid impulse buying as much as possible (But I admit Impulse buyer ako simula pa noon na alam kong mali)

    ➢Don't believe sa mga products na nakakapag patangkad o nakakapag patalino. If it's true pede din pala maging matangkad at matalino ang lahat ng tao sa mundo.

    ➢Karamihan ng sobra ay lason. Too much jealousy, too much love, too much expectation, too much trust and obsession etc.

    ➢Relationship talks. If nagawa ng tao ipagpalit ang ex nila sa nakilala lang nila online, hindi sila worth it seryosohin, if kaya nila yun gawin sa past relationship nila, kaya din yun gawin sayo. The truth hurts.

    ➢And lastly, I like pie.

    "The right partner can make you rich, the wrong partner can make you poor"

    Hindi ko naman papasukin ang stock market at negosyo kung hindi sa gf ko dahil sya nag encourage sa akin, eh ako naman puro sports betting lang ang ginawa ko dati. Gf ko hinikayat ako mag negosyo at sa stock market pero ako hinikayat ko ang gf ko kung mag casino at mag bet sa sports. Seems like right partner sya at ako wrong partner. hmm

    ^Pero honestly this is just from experience (not me but someone I knew), if kung guy ka, wag na wag mo kakant0ten babaeng 'may alak'. Kahit siya pa nag iinitiate, o kahit sobrang maganda siya. Magjack0l ka na lungs. LMFAO
    Sarap mag drunken sex...pero it's not worth it. Pagnabintangan ka ng rap3...the burden of proof is yours (9/10 you're guilty until YOU prove them wrong).
    They'll always generally take the side of the woman when it's your word vs hers.
    In the service, nakita ko na yan. Nasira career nung guy na siya pa yung naseduce na pockpock na ka-squad niya. Kahit andaming nakakakita na laplapan sila sa party bago pa sila nawala at nagkant00tan sa kotche. Two weeks later, she filed complaints, na took advantage of daw siya.
    She was transferred units lang; he was forced to retire with the threat of court martial. General discharge, two year short of a decent retirement---at least walang criminal record. Pero sayang, pinaka magaling na leader na kilala ko...mabait pa. Buti na lang later on he got out and became a doctor.
    Masira pa yung dignity mo (here in America, mayroong lifetime registration for sex offenders).
    Jack0l ka na lungs sa Pornhub. ;)
    PS: Not counting yung gf mo ha...sa gf mo try mo ecstasy before sex. LMFAO

    ^ Tama.
    Ang babae pag type ka, sasama sa yo at ayaw pang umuwi. :giggle:
    I remember one time yung chick ko na nireto ng kapatid ko at nagpapatulong magapply ; mineet ko to help her apply for a job in my previous company. She was all the way from Laguna and mineet ko sa McDonalds beside our office. Pagkita ko, takte ganda e. Tisayin. Di ako nagpahalata na medyo type ko sya. Nilibre ko ng chicken Mcdo LOL then showed her to the HR and just waited for her to finish the employment process at McDo. Whole day kami magkasama at parang walang balak pang umuwi. Gala lang sa mall. Then nung gabi nagyaya mga tropa ko na gumimik sa Eastwood so sinama ko na rin. Medyo tipsy na sya from the few Smirnoff Mule I gave her at nagpresent yung isang tropa ko na chick din na kung gusto nya na dun na matulog yung bagong meet kong chick since medyo tipsy na. Eh ayaw kahit anong kulit ng tropa ko, sakin na lang daw sya sasama at gusto daw nya sa place ko na matulog. LOL
    My other tropa (lalake) gave me that look na, "You'll screw hwr tonight". Kasi kilala nya ko na halos iba iba pinapakilala dati.
    Buti kaya ko pa naman magdrive at nakauwi kami nang maayos. Then yun natulog lang at cuddle kami the whole night. Medyo nagalangan akong galawin sya dahil baka mabastusan kasi medyo lasing na kami parehas and I don't want to leave a bad impression especially kakilala ng kapatid ko saka baka sabihin na nirape ko. LOL
    Di kasi sya yung babaeng bastusin tulad ng ilang naka ONS ko.
    Hanggang 1st and 2nd base lang. Nung umaga, naglakad at hinatid ko lang sa sakayan. Layo kasi ng Laguna, mahal gas. LOL
    She's in the US now.
    Di ko pinaalam sa gf ko nangyari. :giggle:
    Dami ko pang past experience na kalokohan. Saka na iba. LOL

    - When reading online reviews always check the 1-3 star ratings. It will reveal a certain pattern of reklamo or faults. Most reviews will have negative feedback naman talaga but be wary if yung issue or reklamo is very consistent.  Also check actual images na shini-share ng mga nakabili na.

    An example of this is when checking insurance, nangunguna sa 5 star review yung isa sa ‘budget friendly’ company. 5-4 star reviews revealed how happy they are sa final quote compared sa ibang company. Pero if you’ll check the 1-3 star reviews, malalaman mo na they are the worst offenders sa pagbabayad ng claims (which is the main point why people take insurance). 

    When buying leather (eg sofa), always check if it’s full grain/top grain leather. Any other leather description is BS and meant to goyo you. Kahit na sabihing genuine leather yan, if bonded leather naman pala bad quality pa din siya. Also ask if all parts of that sofa will be full grain/top grain leather. 

    A top ceremonial grade matcha has a bright light green color and it should’t be bitter when prepared correctly. Ideally stored sa ref after opening to maintain freshness. A ceremonial grade matcha will always be quite costly. 

    Most matcha’s that are available are the lower grade matcha meant for cooking/baking.

    Walang pinoy ang marunong o may intensyong magbayad ng utang sa pinas.  

    Laging tatandaan: Pag may nangu-ngutang; magbingi-bingihan sabay CR :giggle:

    iwas kayo hangga't maaari sa mga selfies at salitang "me, myself, I, ganito ako, ganito kami, etc.." pag magpopost sa social media kung di naman kailangan. mas magmumukhang interesting ang personality nyo. ipaubaya nyo na lang sa mga celebrities at mga kilalang tao yun.

  • BigDickSteveBigDickSteve PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Another suggestion, wag kayo madala kapag ang kausap nyo ay mag send ng good photos nila, most of the time hindi sila maganda sa personal, the only way to find out if maganda ang tao or gwapo if makita mo sa personal, hindi sa pics.

    Noon kapag may kodakan (pityur an?) sigaw agad ako "wait!" "wait!".
      Ngayon kapag may nagkukuhanan tumatalikod ako o umaalis, o magsasabi ako sandali lang sabay eskapu..

    Never listen to anyone for any business advice except if they are millionaire businessmen or investors. Just go for it and the hell with their unpopular opinion. Do your due diligence and follow your gut feeling, prove them wrong.

    Natatandaan ko noon na isang eksperimento sa mismong estudyante ko sa ang binigyan ko ng pagkakataong sila ang humusga at bigyan ng grado ang sari sarili nila sa test, sa attendance, at sa mga project.
       Sinabi ko ren na hindi ko tatanggapin kapag ang nilagay ay Outstanding, sa kanilang performances, dahil hindi ako naniniwala na may taong ma a out stand ang lahat ng kategorya, excellent?, puwede! Gusto ko kasing malaman kung sino ang honest at mapagkakatiwalaan, maniwala kayo at hindi ang bababa ng grado na inilagay nila sa kanilang sarili. Hehehe
